I don't want to be able to spam my bullets. I want to have a 0.4-second cooldown between shots. How do I do that?
Try using the timer behavior.
Add a condition to check if the timer is running and add an action to start the timer for .4 seconds in the shooting event.
Could you tell me exactly what to do? I'm new to Construct and don't really know my way around yet. I would appreciate direct instructions. i.e: Add Condition > system > wait 2 seconds > add condition

It's probably easier to just create a condition - while button is down. Then add a sub-condition - every X seconds - fire bullet.
Thank you! It works! Have a nice day :)
